This salad is really good.. look at the picture!!  My photog skills are improving right?  The salad glistens.. GLISTENS!

1/4 c red wine vinegar
1/4 c vegetable oil
2 t sugar
1/2 t salt
1/2 t dried parsley flakes

Add all ingredients and pour dressing over it
let cool in refrigerator for 1 hour...done!

.50/1 Heinz Vinegar

Last year I had tons of zuchinni and tomatoes (go figure) in my garden and found a recipe on for a zuchinni tomatoe salad. It is very similar to this one. Just slice the zuchinni raw like you would the cucumber (but you don't need to peel it) it was really delicious. I took it to a work potluck and they loved it. Just trying to help you use up your zuchinni too! lol
